Do you love London? Some people think you should only travel to London during certain times of the year. Those people are…well…wrong. No matter what time of year it is, London is absolutely brimming (get it? because of rain?) with amazing activities. Check out the London Marathon or the Chelsea Flower show in the spring, or head on over to watch the BBC Proms or Notting Hill Carnival during the summer. Of course, who could forget about Guy Fawkes’ Night or Christmas in the fall and winter? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
